Lightroom has been frequently crashing for the past 3 months on my mid-2011 iMac (3.4 GHz i7).  I've tried creating new catalogs, hoping it would help but the crashes persist.  All software is up to date.  GPU acceleration has also been disabled as suggested in other forums.

Please try to update to the Lightroom 6.14 to see if it helps. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-downloads.html

Also submit the crash report to Adobe with your email address.

Thanks! I manually updated to 6.14.  Not sure why Lightroom didn't detect any updates through the application itself.  I'll submit the next crash report if/when it happens.

I have found it to crash most often in when shooting in tethered mode; very unstable, often have to wait for better part of a minute for pictures to download, very suspenseful wondering if they'll make it or not. Using 2013 macbook air, High Sierra 10.13.1, LR 7.0.1. I have had any number of operational issues with LR over the last two years, my conclusion is that this is a very low priority program for Adobe and my expectations for improvement are very low.

Richard 7.1 was released in December. You should try the update.  I shot 1445 images while tethered across 4 days using 7.1 and didn't crash once, didn't even drop tether connection once...
